Links to stage articles[edit]

There was a problem with the links from the "Stages" table to the stage sections at 2008 Tour de France, Stage 1 to Stage 11 and 2008 Tour de France, Stage 12 to Stage 21. As the section headings in the subsidiary articles had the date embedded into them, the links only worked iif the user's date preference matched that in the wikilink in the "Stages" table. As I'm sure I've read that any wiklink in section headings is frowned upon, I have amended the section headings in the subsidiary articles to read simply "Stage 1" etc. with the date and stage details in bold immediately below. I hope this is O.K. --Bikeroo (talk) 05:03, 8 July 2008 (UTC)

Four in a single Tour[edit]

The claim that Petacchi was the last to win four stages in a single tour, in 2003, is not correct. Lance Armstrong won four stage in 2004.

I suspect the claim is supposed to be that Cavendish is the first to win four road stages in a single tour (one of Armstrong's was an ITT). I'm going to make that change, because it simply is not correct that Petacchi was the last. Nosleep (talk) 07:52, 19 July 2008 (UTC)

Heh, that edit'll work. I must have missed 19 when I did my count. Nosleep (talk) 12:34, 19 July 2008 (UTC)


Can we get on to the guy who makes the profile images, I think the page will soon need the last ones.  PN57  02:13, 22 July 2008 (UTC)

I've left a message on his talk page on WP Commons. Bikeroo (talk) 04:16, 22 July 2008 (UTC)
That was quick. PN57  04:24, 22 July 2008 (UTC)

Souvenir Henri Desgrange[edit]

The text commentary and stage summary for stage 16 on the Tour's official site says that this award was given to Augustyn, for being first over the Col de Bonette. Unfortunately, the equivalent sources say that it was given to Schumacher on stage 17 for being first over the Galibier. The race rules say that the prize is for first over the Galibier, but convention says that it is for the highest pass of the tour, which this year was the Bonette, but is often the Galibier. The Galibier is particularly associated with Desgrange, with there being a memorial to him at the bottom, but that is probably not definitive proof. Anyone have any idea as to which source we can be confident in. Kevin McE (talk) 21:59, 24 July 2008 (UTC)
